Choices & Careers; Free to Choose; Marriage --- Expectations or Reality. Books II and III and Leaders Guide.
The unit explores several ideas regarding marriage and emphasizes that tribal women need to plan for a career as well as for marriage. The following concepts are to be stressed: (1) roles in marriage have changed; (2) people marry for a variety of reasons; (3) love is not the only consideration in selecting a mate; (4) marriage is really a marriage for both persons; (5) women are likely to be employed during their marriage; (6) working mothers can be good mothers; (7) both parents can share child care; (8) couples can make a marriage contract; (9) there may be a relationship between employment and divorce; (10) teenage marriages face some serious hazards; and (11) nonmarriage is an alternative. The unit features student books for girls aged 12 to 14 and 15 to 18. These contain self-analysis questionnaires and studies for discussion which give the girls practice in problem solving. A separate section, "Map Your Future," is part of the unit; it includes a game board and a set of cards for each girl and a set of problems for the group. The leaders' guide contains background information and learning experiences for each of the concepts presented. (Author/CM)
